Starting in January 2017, Children’s Defense Fund - California will be launching the CDF Freedom Schools® Parent Engagement Institute Pilot Program that will help parents develop greater capacity to support their children’s academic development, build stronger communication and interaction, and strengthen their leadership skills to effectively engage in their scholars' education.
Through a partnership with Read Lead Inc. and Success in Challenges, we are seeking interested parents that will commit to participating in a series of workshops and activities that will take place over a six-month span.
Interested parents or legal guardians must:
1. Have a child age 5 to 18 who has participated in a CDF Freedom School program in Compton, Lynwood, or Long Beach; and have a child younger than 5 who will be participating in a Freedom Schools program in the future, or
2. Have a child between the ages of 0 to 5 and resides within a five-mile radius of a Compton, Lynwood, or a Long Beach Freedom School site.
The program is free and participation is limited. For more information, please contact Joy Masha at (310) 704-9362 or Joy@readlead.org
